really don't think the homicide rate impacts the voter turnout. host: let's get a call from los angeles, fran in los angeles on the democratic line. caller: good morning, c-span, and professor. romney outsourced jobs to china when he was the owner of bain capital from 1998 to 2002. he has said that he's not concerned about the poor. the republicans blocked the jobs bill that president obama offered, because they wanted him to fail. why do you think that mr. romney and the republicans would do better than president obama in the next four years? necessarily think that mr. romney and the republicans would do better in the next four years, personally. however, i do think that mr. romney and other republicans have an audience in virginia, a core element of support. those individuals feel that mr. romney and the republicans will do better. there's a sentiment in virginia that government is too big and the debt is too high. i don't think anyone would disagree with the fact that the debt is too high. some opponents of president obama are saying you have had your chance, so give someone else a chance.
